Everyone likes to share their experiences with someone. Everyone likes a witness…

Everyone loves a funny bad guy. (I think?)

A mini Burning Man / Afrikaburn-type psychedelic trance party is a glorious visual & audio spectacle!
And besides adding that value, it’s also a perfectly apt setting – not just because Cape Town is the Cradle of Human Consciousness (where we believe humans first ‘woke’ to create art about 100,000 years ago) , but because this film strives to show how, sitting alongside our primal human need to express consciousness, is AI – our next evolutionary step!

No coincidence our hero’s name is Magdalena – I’m pushing mythology here!
Also a nod to Yuval Harari, with his ‘AI will know you better than you know yourself…’

I know, I know, it’s hard to imagine a tiny old-school box ruling the Internet, but it’s meant to be the tip of a pyramid of control. I may need to work on making it more impressive?

Since film crews play such a big part in creating builds for awesome events like Afrikaburn (our version of Burning Man), that for a scene like this, I think I could just turn the cameras on the crew…

I thought using vehicle-motions, kicking dust etc would give plenty of nice wipes between scenes. Of course, hard to guess what’ll be best in the cut, but NB to give editors an arsenal of shots to work from.
